How to add more contextual search services in macOS

Macworld - Fri, 08/10/2018 - 08:00

When you select text in nearly any program in macOS and then right-click, a Search With Google option appears. Select it, and Safari comes frontmost with the results of that Google search. But what if you want other options?

Macworld reader Forrest finds this particularly irritating in Apple Mail, given that he’s switched from Google to DuckDuckGo for all his searching.

You should be able to change this in Safari: Safari > Preferences > Search and select one of the four search engines listed there, which includes DuckDuckGo. That doesn’t appear to be working for Forrest, so the following may help.

IDG

Safari lets you change the system-wide default for search engine, but only lists four choices.

Holedown isn't free, but that's partly why it's fun

Macworld - Fri, 08/10/2018 - 07:00

Martin Jonasson, the creator of the popular ricochet game Holedown, says that the usual business of “freemium” games like cooldowns and consumables rubs him the wrong way. He acknowledges that some games implement free-to-play monetization systems well, but he’s turned off by how they force him to serve “multiple masters.”

“You can’t only focus on making the player’s experience positive [under that model]; you have to ensure there’s some money trickling in as well,” he tells me. “That’s a concern I’m happy to avoid.”

Focusing on the experience alone has paid off. Holedown only costs $3.99, but it’s simple and endlessly entertaining. It isn’t hard: Its main challenges deal with learning how to aim and collecting enough crystals to shoot more balls at once and move on to even deeper planets. It’s a “delightful spectacle of bouncing,” in Jonasson’s own words, and I see no reason to dispute them. It relaxes more than it frustrates, in large part because there’s rarely any question that your failures spring from your own mistakes rather than resisting subtle pushes to cash shops.

Further US sanctions would be 'declaration of economic war': Medvedev

Top Stories - Fri, 08/10/2018 - 06:25

Russia warned Friday that if the US followed through with threats to impose further harsh economic sanctions it would be seen as a "declaration of economic war". The warning by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev came after Washington unveiled a raft of new sanctions against Russia over its alleged use of the Novichok nerve agent against a former double agent which Britain has blamed on Moscow. The incident, which took place in Salisbury in southern England in March, triggered a major diplomatic crisis despite Russia's denial of any role.

Corel Painter 2019 review: Corel gets back to basics with an interface- and performance-centric upgrade

Macworld - Fri, 08/10/2018 - 06:00

When Corel took stock of Corel Painter, the perennial go-to app for digital artistry, the company decided that for the 2019 version, it would concentrate not on flashy headlining new features, but on enhancing app interface and performance.

The new Painter now joins other visual creation and effects software by implementing a dark interface and pairing that with a complete app design overhaul. Painter 2019 also delivers speed boosts and features that simplify and amplify creative workflows. Oh, and there are 36 new brushes and a new brush category.

Compared with last year's upgrade, which showcased complex new brush and texture technologies, Corel's aim with Painter 2019 is more modest, but still solid.
